why swim lessons?
Water is all around us. Even the smallest bit of water can be a cause for concern when you have little ones, and yes even a bucket of water can be dangerous. A child who has been trained to hold their breath may be able to save their own life should an accident occur.
*Our #1 priority is water and pool safe.
*Our swim structure is easy and repetitive.
* We always strive to be teachers and coaches first BUT make long lasting clients and friends along the way.
During your swim lesson adventure…
*Your child may talk about swim lessons in a positive light and others not so positive.
* Some children may display anxiety to go to class, and refusing to put on their bathing suits on swim lesson day.
The best advice is…
*Explain to them how important it is to be safe around pools and water and the dangers that come with not knowing how to swim.
* If needed not tell them about swim lesson day, this may cause the build up of anxiety.
Simply try to bring them and change them when you get there.
*The first two weeks, are always the hardest for little ones BUT please keep coming.
Note to parents: Keep your heart and mind on the prize, which is a water safe child and our instructors at LKSS are doing the same.
*Children who don’t love water learn to and the ones who love water learn to respect it.
*You want your child to be somewhat concerned with just jumping in the water because it can mean life or death.
